Here are some photos: before (left) and after (right).
Good riddance, I say, to the etched shower glass doors, honey builder grade cabinets,
mismatched hardware, and squiggly mirrors over the sink. We love the new look and
feel of this room.
On an eco-friendly note: We were able to sell several items from the old bathroom on
craigslist so they got reused in someone else's home instead of languishing in a second
time around shop with an uncertain future. I was so pleased to see people buy the
mirrors, shower doors, light fixture, hardware, and the entire vanity including the
counter, sinks and faucets. Plus, the new cabinets are bamboo, a sustainable material.
It only took us a year and a half to complete it. Ha! Many lessons learned, friends.
For example, hire someone to do tile that does tile (not just handywork) for a living so you
don't have to do it, in it's entirety, twice. And have a plan before you start gutting the room.
What can I say, we got a little ahead of ourselves. But that's all history now, and all I see
when I'm in this bathroom are calming colors and design in a very comfortable space.
Of course, we're not going to do all this work and then share three measly photos. So, here
While we're on the topic of making your house a home and DIY projects, I want to share
this link ---> 50 beautiful blogs to make your home more like Martha's. (I found it on
orgjunkie.com and wanted to pass it forward.) What a totally cool resource filled with
tons of ideas and inspiration for entertaining, decorating, organizing, holidays, and DIY.
You're gonna want to bookmark this one. Enjoy!
